We called here with a number of Series One Land Rovers in June 2017 and were invited to have a line up in front of Russborough House which was kind of them. Lovely house and grounds with fantastic views - really nicely maintained.

We were lead around this lovely Palladian mansion by a witty and informative guide. Some lovely information about the architecture, occupants and art. Very nice café too. Shop staff could be a tad more interested in customers, pity.

Response from eric56wicklow | Property representative |
The guided tour lasts almost an hour. They leave on the hour ie. at 1.00pm then 2.00pm then 3.00pm etc. The Maze needs half an hour -particularly if you have children !!
